SCHURTER's Management Meeting 2017

Management Meeting 2017

The SCHURTER International Management Meeting was this year held in the UK from the 7th to 11th September 2017, with 25 CEO’s from group companies travelling to the UK from worldwide locations.
On Friday the 8th of September the company invited the CEO’s to visit the factory in Aylesbury. The guests were given a welcome presentation by the UK CEO, Andy Birch and his management team. This was followed by a tour of the factory and a chance to show off our site. The tour took guests around each department in order to demonstrate the capabilities of the facility and the effective day to day running of the site.

Once the tours were complete a BBQ took place in the gardens of the Broad Leys pub and restaurant for both the visitors and the staff of SCHURTER. Thanks to a let up in the weather, the evening was a huge success with great BBQ food and also fish & chips to add a British touch, great ambience and even cupcakes emblazoned with the SCHURTER logo to finish!

On Saturday 9th September the agenda continued at the base for the management meeting, Sopwell House, St Albans, Hertfordshire. The theme of the day was strategic planning and this was followed in the evening by a meal at the award-winning local restaurant, Thompson.
On the afternoon of Sunday the 10th, the CEO’s took a well-earned break from proceedings to make a trip to the Luton Hoo Estate in Bedfordshire. Here they participated in various country pursuits such as Archery, Lawn Croquet and Falconry whilst experiencing first hand some truly bracing British weather! A welcome afternoon tea interval gave them all chance to warm up before enjoying a guided tour of the Luton Hoo Hotel. The evening drew to a close in The Sitting Room at the Mansion House with a 3-course dinner. 

On Monday 11th, with all presentations made and future planning proposals set, the agenda was concluded and the CEO's departed, having experienced a diverse range of local hospitality which spanned across three neighbouring counties.

The management meeting really outlines what SCHURTER stand for as a company. SCHURTER unites together across multiple countries and cultures to work as one. SCHURTER shows professionalism and a passion for what they do.

The manufacturing site based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire specialises in human-machine interfaces, membrane keypads and Touchscreens. This means that SCHURTER is able to design a complete solution to meet our customer’s needs.


  1. Seems to be an interesting post! Got an open invitation from my friend for a knowledgeable meeting organized by her. Booked one of the spacious meeting space San Francisco suggested by her employee. Loved the choice of menu selection and simple decorations done. Event was really a great success.
